Mr. Xaver Scharwenka gave us our last 
Artist Recital of this year, Monday evening, 
February 6. He presented a very interesting 
program, one which gave adequate scope for 
his display of versatile and intelligent 
musical art. The fact that he brought his 
own piano was very characteristic of his 
playing; it had the independence and mas- 
tery of possession. 

His first big Chopin number had exceed- 
ingly great difficulties of technique — per- 
haps the greatest of any piece written for the 
piano — and the player executed it with a 
masterful, firm touch, brought a great depth 
of tone out of it, and achieved fine rhetorical 
effects. It was essentially exciting, and made 
a very impressive opening number. 

The following Liszt selections obtruded 
their technique upon us. Mr. Scharwenka's 
runs had a ravishing daintiness, ease and 
clearness, and in the "Ricordanza" they gave 
a character almost childlike to the lightness 
and sweetness of the piece, so that its mean- 
ing and message was poignantly felt. Im- 
agination was powerfully present again in 
the " Mephisto Valse," which was very mys- 
terious. The various moods were well 
chained together and strikingly contrasted, 
and the suspense was managed dramatically. 
The player showed himself capable in this 
number to capture that elusive thing, "at- 
mosnhere." The character of this piece 
demands something more than ''legitimate 
piano playing" to make it interesting, and 
the recurring weird melody wrung all its 
meaning out of the pure tone and 
impressionistic thunderous effects of the 
artist. The surprise in ending with the final 
twist to a different key was managed with a 
finish and precision that was very moving. 

A Chopin nocturne followed as an encore, 
and here Mr. Scharwenka's dignity and 
graciousness in giving encores deserves 
tribute. The imaginative element was in 
such prominence in the rendition of this 
selection as to make the effect almost dream- 
like. Always pianistically conceived, the 
voices were like singing, the phrases com- 
pleted in a way that made the long, pleasing 
melodies subside, as it were, into effer- 
vescences. The nocturne character was 
definite and in perfect proportions. 

The long Beethoven sonata received an 
intelligent and appreciative execution, the 
quietness, the delicacy, and, above all, the 
essential bigness of the sonata being well 
interpreted. All the possibilities of tone and 
mood and feeling came out wonderfully, and 
one felt oneself stirred by the dignity and 
greatness of the work. This number was 
resting, following directly, as 
lid, upon the Liv/.f and Chopin selections. 

Mr. Scharwenka's own compositions were 
' evidence of study 
before. His first, "Theme with Variations," 
was especially interesting, and showed great 
skill in composition. The two "Polish 
Dances" had a splendid folk-song individ- 
uality, and progressed with abandon and a 
lively charm. 

Two more encores followed, a " Waldstuck" 

of Schumann's, played with the dreaminess, 

and finish which leave no 

e of workman ,hip, and a Chopin " Walz" 

with exquisite articulation and spirit. Mr. 

irwenka is a iters 

faithfully, who allows nothing of,theirs to be 

hidden from him, and who does not obtrude 
his own style upon his interpretations to the 
extent of concealing, even slightly, their 
original meaning. 

His programme in full was as follows:

On Friday and Saturday evenings, Feb- 
ruary 10 and 11, College Hall Chapel was 
filled with crowds of those who had come to 
hear the annual concert of the Glee and 
Mandolin Clubs. The entire program went 
with a snap that assured success, and both 
clubs responded unusually well to their 

The Glee Club began the concert with the 
singing of " 'Neath the Oaks" and "The 
Maiden and the Nightingale," whic u caught 
mcy of the audience from the start. 
The encore, "The Gap in the Hedge," was 
well received. 

The opening number of the Mandolin 
Club was a march, " Monstrat Viam." This 
went with a dash that evoked much ap- 
plause. The encore was a "Football Medley," 
arranged from football songs of Yale and 
Harvard. This proved so popular that it, 
too, was encored. 

Then the Glee Club sang the "Rose 
Waltz," whose beautiful melody was well 
brought out by the singing. For an encore 
there was a charming little "coon" song, 
"Pale Brown Lady Sue." 

The Mandolin Quartet followed. Mil- 
dred Wilson played first mandolin, Eleanor 
Hall, second mandolin, Alberta Peltz, man- 
dola and Carrie Longanecker, guitar. The 
first of the two numbers was a simple little 
lullaby, "Sleep, Little Baby of Mine," played 
very softly and dreamily. The second num- 
ber was "Wooden Shoes," which showed the 
real powers of the quartet to the bi 
vantage, as the time was exceedingly difficult 
for concerted playing. It was repeated as 
an encore. 

The popular "Shopgy Shoo" was sung 
next by the Glee Club, the musical setting 
of Paul Ambrose being the one used. This 
song never fails to win applause and the 
Clee Club 's sympathetic rendition won it 

more laurels. The second part of t his number 

was "The Tale of the Moon and the Star." 
It was one of i he best sung and catchiesl 
QUmbi rs the Clee Club has ever sung. The 

1 ncore was "( ) I [earl 0' Mine." 

The concluding number of the first pari 
of the program was t he " Medl< y" 

Mandolin Club. Thi pari oi this, 
including "My Hero," was extre I] well 

1 and ■•.■■J repea ted as an encore. 

The second pai 1 ■-! the co t began wi1 h 

t he "Topical Son-." v, nihil 1 In ■ . LI b 

Pursell and Sylvia Goulston, to the 

tune of "The Girl with the Brogue," from 
"The Arcadians." We rejoiced over the 
prospect of a Faculty with solitaires, over 
the information kindly given to Sophomores 
that "if they were dutiful they would be 
beautiful," and most especially were we com- 
forted by the reassurance that "we still 
have Tupelo." Harriet Coman sang the 
verses, and the Glee Club the chorus. 

The next of the Mandolin Club's numbers, 
"Salut d' Amour," showed the best work it 
did in the evening. The shading, with the 
usually sustained soft notes was exquisite and 
showed much careful preparation. 

The Glee Club followed with a duet and 
chorus, "The Miller's Wooing." Miss Goss 
and Miss Smart sang the solo parts. Both 
of the solo voices were clear and sweet, and 
the chorus was especially effective. 

The Mandolin Club's fourth number was 
"Water Lilies." It was a composition with 
attractive, rippling melody and unexpected 
louder parts. The encore was "La Zithera," 
which was played upon all the instruments 
after the manner of a harp and gave a per- 
fect imitation of the soft tinkle of a zither. 

The Glee Club's last number was an In- 
dian Serenade, which showed very good, 
united work. The next number was the 
quartet, composed of Miss Goss, Miss Co- 
man, Miss Goding and Miss Rugg. The 
first number was especially lovely, and the 
four voices blended exceedingly well. The 
second number was a rather weird song, "Far 
Off I Ileai a Lovci's Fiuie." TrfiS, too showed 
splendid work by all four members of the 

The Mandolin Club's concluding number 
was a rapid Spanish waltz, "Pepeeta." It 
was a brilliant concert piece and found much 
favor with the audience. 

The program was concluded by "Alma 
Mater," by the Glee and Mandolin Clubs.

To bore — or to be bored — ? The News 
propounds the question to its readers with 
all seriousness, as one to be duly considered. 
Especially profitable is such meditation at 
this time of the year, when, with midyears — 
let us hope, safely, — behind you, you are 
plunging blindly into a new semester, your 
note-book filled with new, empty pages. 
Your mind also is conveniently cleared of 
all surplus knowledge of the past half year's 
work, and you are ready to assimilate all 
the new lectures and discussions which will 
soon almost swamp you with their conflict- 
ing ideas. At such a time, you perhaps 
insist, you consider that abstract meditation 
is not the wisest way in which to open a 
semester's work; the NEWS, however, hastens 
t o assure you that a few moments' considera- 
tion of tlie subject of Boredom will not 
greatly stand in the way of the A credits 
which you are planning for. 

Unless you are a very exceptional kind 
of a person- and you most probably arc 
not you are rather likely to have one of 
two prevailing tendencies in your relation- 
ships with those about you — you are either 
one who bores some, if not all, of your neigh- 
or, if you are clever enough not to 
bore them, you are bored by them. 

It may not be given you to choose between 
these attitudes for, if you bore your friends, 
.mi are doubtless happy in your ignorance. 
The refreshing side of you is that you have 
no idea that you are uttering bromidioms,

or talking endlessly on worn-out subjects. 
You yourself are delightfully interested in 
what yem are saying, and it does not occur to 
you that some one else would make exactly 
the same remark under the same circum- 
stances. You are having a much more 
satisfactory experience than your bored, 
superior friend, and in the opinion of the 
editor, you are much more to be envied 
than she. For she — poor mortal — no matter 
how easy originality may be to her, has 
her reputation to uphold ; she must be witty — 
or, if not witty, she must at least escape the 
bromidia. She is bound, at certain times, 
to become self-conscious, and to consider 
the impression she is making, for she inevita- 
bly comes once in a while into contact with 
another before whom every scrap of her 
self-confidence vanishes, and she begins to 
wonder why she is so hopelessly uninterest- 
ing. She is continually on the alert to catch 
and comment on bromidic remarks of others ; 
she has become almost morbidly sensitive 
to them, and she is likely to construe the 
most harmless statements into glaring^bro- 
midioms. She looks on life from a vastly 
superior standpoint, and in reality narrows 
herself down to a pitifully small outlook, 
bounded by her own ideas — poor, or good, 
as the case may be — of the interesting and 
the stupid. She chooses her associates from 
this outlook — governs her choices and her 
actions from this outlook; she is decidedly in 
danger of becoming an insufferable egotist — 
all because she is bored. yJ * 

'I'he person who bores, however, has the 
happy faculty of never being bored, and, 
because she demands less she is, on the 
whole, a more comfortable person to live 
with. She finds something interesting in 
each new individuality with which she come 
in contact; she docs not demand that thai 
person In- startlingly original. She finds 
pleasure, not only in people, but in situa- 
tions the most commonplace, at which her 
bored neighbor would high in excess of boredom 
She could say truly with Mr. J. R. Green: - 

"What seems fairer to me as life goes by, 
IS th< love and peace and tenderness of it; 
no1 it . wit and cleverness and grandevu oi 
edge, grand as knowledge is, but just 
the laughter of lit t Le children, and t he friend- 
ship of friends, and the COSy talk by the lire- 
side, and the sight of flowers, and th< 

oi music." 
Results of the Suffrage Vote. 

The vol ing of Pebruai 5 1 on the que I ion 
oi equal uffragi re ulted in a 1 udenl vote 

of 850, of which 557 were opposed to the ex- 

tension of suffrage, 293 in favor of it. Of 
the 45 votes cast by the Faculty, 36 were in 
favor of it, 9 opposed. The classes voted as 

191 1 : Yes, 83. No, 103. 

191 2: Yes, 66. No, 118. 

1913: Yes, 59. No, 115. 

1914: Yes, 67. No, 194. 

This adverse vote is attributed to lack of 
knowledge and indifference on the part of 
the majority of the student body. 

"It seems unlikely that such a vote would 
have occurred at Yassar, where the spirit 
seems uncommonly militant of recent years. 
One is usually told 'back East' of the pioneer 
flavor to the Wellesley traditions, of how the 
college stood out stoutly for am entire Faculty 
of women, for example, and other things 
equally impressive in the early days. But 
we fear that this vote on woman's suffrage 
scarcely reflects anything but the indiffer- 
ence to contemporary life of a lot of sheltered 
young women."

An English lady, who is in charge of the children of the Mahara- 
jah of Kolhapur, India, wishes an American young woman as a com- 
panion in this work. The prescribed duties of this person would 
consist mainly of piano lessons for one of the children. Anyone who 
should take the place would be expected to pay her traveling ex- 
penses to India and return, but she would lie at no expense for living, 
and she would have a compensation of about thirteen dollars a 
month. It must be evident that the position affords rare opportu- 
nity for becoming acquainted with an interesting country and a 
novel phase of life. Anyone interested is asked to address or see 
Miss Caswell, 130 College Hall, who has a letter giving further de- 
tails regarding the position.

Courses Wellesley College Offers. 

It cannot be a new fact 1 anyone t hat Europeans and returning 
Americans all criticize severely the speech of American women. 

Our latest critic of note, Henry James, accuses us of com- 
plaisance and a very general objection to all criticism as an infringe- 
ment on our independence. We can make our wants known, we can 
communic.v Whai matter the how?

There was an amusing, but a sad article a year ago in the

aware of the vocal peculiarities of her country-women: 
"At the end of the year and a half I emerged from my Italian 
surroundings and began the usual tour across Europe, constantly 
meeting and talking with Americans. The shock was indescrib- 
able. The first day of my journey I occupied the compartment of 
the railway carriage with four delightful young ladies from various 

states. Every time any one of them spoke I winced 

I do not expect anyone to believe my description of it." 

I think that there is no sensitive woman who has traveled who 
has not had the same or worse experience. I remember a party of 
American girls taking possession of a pension in Edinburgh and my 
sensitiveness to the deserved criticism on their speech. Sad to say 
all American voices under the stress of excitement are recognized. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, years ago, spoke feelingly on the same 
subject. Must the criticism be forever smilingly accepted, or is it 
the duty of every intelligent woman to wake to the fact that some- 
thing can be done about it? 

( )ne of the superintendents of the New York public schools said 
that he would never employ a teacher without seeing her; and that, 
no matter how perfect her equipment for teaching, if she had a dis- 
agreeable voice and lack of presence, on no condition would he en- 
gage her. Is he not right? He would not have another generation 
by imitation follow such an example. 

Lately an Englishwoman addressed the Wellesley Faculty 
and made everyone who heard her realize the beauty of the English 
language as strongly as the beauty of her thought. "Her voice was 
music," and her clear, crisp enunciation a real mental satisfaction. 
Why not? Those beautiful words have come way down through the 
ages to us. 

My theme was to be not altogether the need of elocution, but 
also what the college has to offer. All that has been said is timely if 
the student can be made to realize that voice-training is the essential 
point in all the work. 

The wrong attitude in college, in fact, out of college, too, is that 
elocution should be the study of those who have talent for it. 
Far from it! It should, above all, be the study of those deficient in 
vocal power. We all, too, need to remember that it takes patience 
and time to combat the faults fostered from childhood. Many a 
one of us really "speaks as a child," trying, in a child's voice, to 
record the experience of the woman. 

To overcome all this, demands of the student openness to 
criticism and faithful concentrated practice on technique. Voice 
work is like five-finger exercises in music, to which even genius is not 
superior. In our American zeal to get on, we forget this fact. 

It is encouraging to know thai every voice can be improved. 
More students should elect the work because of their great need oi 
the training. 

Course I lias for its object I lie training in position and bre;i th- 
ing essentials for voice production, indeed, for health and appear- 
ance; also training in articulation necessary to all human inter- 
course, and the simple, direct speaking of good literature. 

The small divisions in voice work under Miss Drouet make it 
possible to approach individual attention in these respects. 

Elocution II, in addition to the continuance of the aims of 

Elocution I remember, "art is long"— adds the development of 
bodily freedom and the appreciation and expression of the higher 
forms of literal ure. 

Elocution 111 is a course in the interpretation of Shakespeare. 

I In re are many appr< ache i to so greal an au1 hor, one surely being 
an attempl to express vocally the thoughl and emotion of the 
writer. The plays were writ ten for speech. In utterance one be- 
comes coi i oi the power and felicity of diction. The charac- 

too, begin to come out of the pages and live for us. We find 
thai in daily life they thoughl and felt much as we should. When we 
find common ground with them, what delight to strive for their 
higher mood i! 

There cannot be too much said OH tin- value of really knowing 
by rote and "by heart" such living literature.

It is hard for the students to understand the exact necessity of 
there being a full day of recitations on the Tuesday of the first week 
of examinations. In spite of the "holiday atmosphere," midyears is, 
for most people, a decidedly strenuous period; it is easy to talk 
against "cramming," yet, when a semester's work has to be reviewed 
in a day, cramming is inevitable. It is often impossible to gain 
time for review before midyears begin, and when an examination 
comes on Wednesday, following a day of six recitations on Tuesday, 
it is a severe tax on almost any student, for few of us, no matter 
how thoroughly we have kept up in our work, feel able to take our 
examinations without a fairly systematic study of each course. Of 
course the case mentioned is an extreme one; yet nearly every- 
one has a few days of hard, concentrated work, either at the begin- 
ning or end of the two weeks. And to have Tuesday free would 
be of inestimable value. It does not seem to the writer that the 
value gained from one more day's recitations could outweigh the 
time used for preparation. 191 2. 


Is there any reason why the weekly meeting of the Christian 
Association on Thursday nights cannot be held in Billings Hall 
instead of in College Hall Chapel? Many of us in the east end of 
College Hall, for whom Friday is a full day, find it impossible to 
attend every meeting, and yet our studies are disturbed for over 
half an hour by the constant stream of people going in and out, the 
slamming of the door and the intermittent singing. Especially 
during midyears it has proved distracting and annoying. It is 
frequently said that we should all attend meetings, but none of us 
are given back this half hour's time to prepare for our work, nor are 
our assignments lessened by half an hour because it is Thursday. 
Unless there is some special objection to be urged against it, I should 
think that the transference of the meeting to Billings Hall would be 
a simple solution of the difficulty and prove satisfactory to all of 
us. 1011.

all, they are not half bad. Our brains throbbed and we worked 

rapidly and discovered that, we were capable of undreamed of 
powers of application. The more we crammed, the more we were 
capable of cramming. Our brains grew clearer and we realized our 
greater capabilities of concentration. Those vagu< and Loosely- 
connected hundreds of odd facts were assorted and given their real 
place; we found out the purpose and careful outline of thosi 
courses which, through the semester, had existed in the form of

conglomerate notes and numerous text-books. The fact is that mid- 
years has given us a grasp of ourselves and a grasp of our work as 
well as a relief from the routine of classes. Have we, then, well- 
founded reasons for groaning over midyears? And would it not be 
well, when the time arrives next year, to welcome it as a time of real 
effort and valuable endeavor rather than an interval of unmerited 
pain and anguish?

All members of the college interested in birds, especially if 
planning a trip abroad this summer, will find it worth while to ex- 
amine the case of birds of Western Europe, chiefly from France, 
derived from the Babcock collection, which have recently been 
transferred to individual stands and relabeled. This case will be 
found on the north side of the fourth floor center. 

The collection consists of one hundred and one specimens, repre- 
senting fifty-seven species. Some of these are so similar to our 
American species as to seem almost like replicas, e. g., the Swallow 
(cf. Barn-swallow), as might be expected in birds from the same 
great faunal realm (Holarctic region) ; while others present interest- 
ing differences. The Redbreast is the "Robin Redbreast" of 
literature, quite different from ours, while the Blackbird is a thrush 
and shows its kinship with our American robin. The Kingfisher 
is much smaller and more vividly colored than ours. Bright colors 
are in evidence also on the Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Titmouse and Green 
Woodpecker. The Jay is a very giant comparatively, and the 
Cuckoo is a large, hawklike creature (cf. the Sparrowhawk), whence 
the old saying that cuckoos became transformed into hawks in 
winter. The Hoopoe with its striking crest; the Wryneck, a relative 
of the woodpeckers; and the graceful Wagtails, belong to groups not 
represented in this country; and the Warblers are quite unrelated 
to our American warblers, being members of the thrush family.
